Winter Wonderland

So after weeks and weeks of spring like weather... it started to snow... and its still snowing.  Here are the latest of the kids and homestead adventures: 

 Headed to town??  guess not...  lol 

 These are hazelnuts that usually stand taller than the house... as you can see they started to break... Heather shook most of the snow off, but we still lost about half of them with the next go around of snow...

 And who better to build forts with than my lil Randa...  she stayed out there all day, going through two sets of snow suits and gloves.  but the forts were built and snowballs were thrown. 

Russ built the bird feeding station.  And if you build it, they will come.  This was this morning... I am not the bird person, but I know there are several kinds of birds that come.  The finches were thick this morning... it was cold, and the snow covered everything... so they fought over the finch feeders.  Too much fun...

Beautiful aren't they?  We cant wait to see the hummingbirds!  Happy homesteading!!!
